The AIDS epidemic in Africa has posed serious development challenges. Despite the magnitude of the impact of the epidemic among young people, there is an apparent gap in support to meaningful and sustained participation of YPLHIV in the design and implementation of responses to the epidemic.

The entire response to HIV requires meaningful involvement of YPLHIV from the planning to implementation, basically to see YPLHIV beyond being beneficiaries (clients) to ensure sustained participation of YPLHIV in programme development under the framework of Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention; ensuring a supportive and protective legal and policy environment; focusing on holistic health and wellbeing not only the prevention of transmissions; and addressing psychosocial, sexuality, economic and educational challenges that pose as barriers to humanity.

Although there is a highly active youth movement, YPLHIV are not proportionately represented. Similarly, young people are often not well represented within networks of people living with HIV. The unique needs of YPLHIV have been largely unexplored, let alone addressed, and the space in which these needs can be articulated by YPLHIV has been missing.

These and many other social issues affecting YPLHIV is what AY+ is advocating for through a structured four-ap-proach mechanism outlined below:

  • Establish sustainable Networks of YPLHIV with opportunities for open communication and consultation on an ongoing basis with linkages to PLHIV Networks and Youth Organizations in Africa.

  • Push the needs and the general agenda of YPLHIV to all platforms of the HIV response in countries, the region and beyond. 3. Design interventions and projects to equip YPLHIV with tools to plan and drive their own agendas at country and community level.

  • Advocate for human rights of all Key populations of young people especially young men and women living with HIV in Africa.
